Middle Harbour Southern Catchments

Ku-ring-gai Council has received funding for the Middle Harbour – southern catchments flood study through the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage Floodplain Management Program grants 2018–19.

Steep terrain and ridge-top development have led to major flood risk within Ku-ring-gai, from flash flooding along headwater streams and drainage depressions. This project will develop a flood study, that will be used to undertake a flood risk management study and plan to guide future flood risk management actions.

This Flood study will commence in 2019.
